About me: Hi Bobcats! I am the Associate Director of Student Life and a proud Alumnus of St. Thomas University with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice.

A little bit about myself as an undergraduate I was a Student Government Senator, Peer Mentor, Master of Ceremony, founder of the Criminal Justice Club and the S.W.A.G (Students with Inspiring Goals) Step team. I was presented by Student Affairs the M.V.P Award in 2012, Mr. Bobcat in 2013 & 2015. As an active alumnus, I was responsible for creating St. Thomas University’s first Campus Activities Board in 2014.

I look forward to meeting you all as we ignite student involvement throughout St. Thomas University. We are BOBCATS!
